to some extent, ut then he created and repealed glass-steagall, and everybody blames it on george bush. the conservatives who didn't do much for the letter peace, we tried to expand under karl rove, the voting process, and giving more to hispanic community, and we didn't get one increase in vote in that eight-year period so. what makes you think that we're going to give amnesty and all the set get a bunch of votes? it's fraud, and it's another really ploy by the democratic party to keep promising and benefits to everybody who will vote for them no matter what. scommoip we're going to talk about immigration in our next segment of the "washington journal" today. but we still have about five minutes left in this segment, if you want to call in to give us your take on this growth and opportunities report that was released today, or if you think hanges in the republican debates would have helped republicans in the 2012 election. a couple of other stories to point out, the front page of the "new york times" today, tax credit or spending labels, but in congress, fighting words. host: we'll ta

budgets in the last 40 years. wasn't under president reagan or the first president bush or the second president bush, but 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001. under president clinton and then president bush came in and did a big tax cut in 2001. put us out of balance for a long period of time. and during the period of time when the budget was imbalance the last four times out of 40 years, the revenue was coming in, was higher than it is in any year in the republican budget that's before us now. and what that tells you is that their budget approach is trying o seek balance on the backs of everybody else. by really cutting into those important investments that have helped power our company, by violating important commitments to seniors. and in the end, by raising taxes on middle-income people. why else would they not have joined democrats in sending policy statement to the ways and means committee that says when you go about eliminating tax preferences, don't hit middle-income taxpayers in the process. in fact, mr. chairman, if you look at the mortgage interest deduction, for example, mortgage in

and one of the biggest mistakes we made, goes back starting a little with the end of the bush administration, completely in the clinton administration, they bought into the phoniness of yasser arafat. the man was not a guy who was a terrorist who turned around. he was a terrorist who turned into a big thief. his wife is sitting in the south of france with hundreds of millions of dollars. that's the hundreds of millions through arafat, hillary clint--. >> major thief. the reason it's in the shape it's in, arafat stole the money going to the palestinian authority. >> sean: given by the united states. and to me when the president of the united states stands there with this guy's picture in back of him, it says to me, does this man have any sense of history? does he know what the heck he's dealing with? this is a man who's murdered at least 27 americans, those are the tip of the iceberg, that's i can count. one of the people who invented modern islamic extremist terrorism. he stole hundreds of millions if not billions from his people while he watched them staff starve. >> sean: an
the eight years under president bush, but they act white that all this debt -- they act like all this that happen when president obama was elected. it just amazes me that they want to get rid of medicare, social security, and give tax cuts to the rich. we found outwar war wes cost $6 trillion, were lied into. i do not understand why republicans did not admit they are the ones that ran up the debt under president bush. that is why we are in the shape we're in now. host: of the amendments put it n so far, the senate passed amendment that would eliminate the 2.3% medical device tax. they also defeated an amendment that was the ryan budget proposal from the house. a couple of tweets. daniel says -- host: a couple more calls here. joseph on the republican line. i am 69 years old, and i have seen republican, democrats in power, and i get upset with these republicans because the democrats worked bush and a lot of time they went along with him just because he was president. the republicans need to work with president obama, and they see that when bush was in charge, it did not work, and
you'd want to ski on but all over bushes and roads an absolute disaster. remember, this part of the country has already seen more than double their annual average. that's 100 inches of snow. now it's 106. overnight the latest winter blast sent cars sliding on icy roads in the north. and blew trucks clear off overpasses in the south. nearly half the country is suffering with a brutal mixed bag. snow, sleet, hail and severe whipping winds. >> it's march and still snowing. it's like it's not going to go away. >> reporter: this morning nearly 300,000 customers in alabama and georgia are without power. trees crashed on houses and power lines. >> we've got downed power lines and want to make sure everybody is safe. >> reporter: in the southeast hammering winds some as high as 80 miles per hour and tennis ball-sized hail pounded cities from atlanta back to mississippi. >> definitely one of the worst hailstorms i have ever seen. >> reporter: hail shattered windshields in jackson. and in new york, black ice sent this car into a tree, killing the driver. while unplowed roads halted bus
but the statement about that president bush added $4 trillion of debt in eight years, we have added $6 trillion of debt in four years. so we are at a very critical path and what is difficult for people to understand is the acceleration of interest payments. the president's perspective is as long as we can make our interest payments we are doing fine but the challenge is right now we pay $224 billion a year just in interest. cpo estimates within ten years we will pay $857 billion in interest. that is more than we paid for the entire war in afghanistan across 12 years. we will pay in one year just in interest payments within ten years. this is very serious. we do have to deal with this. >> mike: you told the president a story right out of the bible in your meeting with him. i'm not sure if he totally understood it. the story of king hezekiah. tell us how that related to washington's situation today. >> the clearest example of what is happening in washington today is hezekiah. a great king was very respected. led jerusalem, judah and helped protect the nation for that time but at the end of his te
hook a ball behind some shrubbery and blame an actual bush for once. that's what i'm happy about. i don't mind if he goes golfing. i wish he would stay golfing. it's when he is done golfing that i have trouble. tiger said he was a good putter. that surprises me because in real life it seems to me he is always asking for gym mys. i guess some days you are out there on the course, billy. the hole just looks as big as the area whereby deb's brain is supposed to be. some days you can't just miss. >> so you don't have any problem with the president recreating with mr. woods who dubious resume. you don't see any problem there? >> what business is it of obama's? he he doesn't care. >> bill: if the litmus test is a president can't hang around with anybody with personal problems he is going to be real lonely in washington. [ laughter ] >> seal yourself in carbon night like hons solo. ♪ ♪ o say does that star-spangled banner. >> bill: i do want to know what miller thinks about this lip synching bill. >> i think if an individual wants to lip synch, i have no trouble with that. >> bill: all rig
more than 140 stories the paper ran before the war that gave the bush administration's party line on the front page while burying any objections inside around page 18. now, that may sound like a fail u. to you it does to me. after the post commissioned a piece by writer greg mitchell about media failures, it clearly had second thoughts about putting that in print. for more, i'm delighted to be joined by greg mitchell. greg, thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you john. >> you sound terrific. now, you would seem to be the perfect person to write an outlook story on the media's failures on the run up to the iraq war. it's worth pointing out the media is equally to blame as the politicians. why did they tell you they killed your piece? >> they said it didn't have enough new insights and analysis. of course, i disagreed and i did post the rejected story on line over the weekend so people can judge themselves. i don't know if that was the real reason. certainly a lot of people have joined in on line to claim that it was because the post was performing so poorly running up to the
. >> at the bottom of the hour, ari fleischer the former bush white house press secretary will join us. he co-chaired this rnc project. he helped write this report. >>> president obama expected to announce his pick for labor secretary today. it's thomas perez, the assistant attorney general who heads up the justice department civil rights division. the president also preparing for a visit to israel tomorrow. this will be his first international trip of the second term. the first of his presidency to israel after visiting jerusalem president obama heads to ramallah, and then to amman in jordan. >>> so the ncaa collection committee has spoken. now it is all of our turns to fill out those brackets. while there is no obvious favorite in this year's tournament we do know there will be a new champ because after winning it all last year, kentucky was left out. the top seed in the 68-team torn all right are luisville, gonzaga, indiana and kansas. i've been trying to fill out my bracket all morning. it is not easy. it should be easy for you to beat me and you can compete against all of us here at cnn.
. it lowers it even beyond where george bush had lowered it yes. >> and a $5 trillion hole in the budget too they say when this is all done. >> bill: yeah but he makes up for that by getting rid of obamacare and medicare. >> caller: right it's $200,000 tax cut. >> bill: exactly. but russell it is a total sham and they know that and who are they kidding right? >> well, we got rid of our nut cases our last election in illinois. and they vow to get rid of kurt and this tea party guy from down state in the next election. illinois has had enough of the republicans. >> bill: well, i will hope that -- pardon me -- that that would be true with a lot of these tea party people, because that's who is driving the train here in the united states congress. russell good to hear from you. out in las vegas, nevada. lee joining us. hey, lee, good morning. >> caller: good morning, bill. how many times, bill are we going to hear about this -- i call him eddie munster budget? it's so pathetic that why don't they just give it to the rich on a silver plate -- >> bill: well, they do. yeah. >> call
are in the bedroom and not the bedroom -- border. and the press is allowed to paint president bush as a conservative for gun-control who put everything on a credit card, the press gets away with painting him as a big belt buckle conservative when the reality is that that line in the san has always been true from the press. it is an uphill climb. 86% 76% democrats. when you say that experiences shaped the world, i agree, but if we get out of the bedroom -- and the press asks a conservative, personally, on abortion, they would say would be for personal responsibility. host: -- guest: you touch on two important aspects. with respect to getting out of the bedroom and into the board room, i would agree with you. as a fiscal and social conservative myself, i make the case -- i am much more libertarian, i guess, which is why i am excited to see what brand paul is doing in terms of redirecting -- rand paul is doing in terms of redirect recover station. we create this inherent conflict by saying that we are for individual liberties and freedoms and the ability to make choices in your life, but on the other h
and balancing our budget and back within our means and the statement that president bush added 4 trillion in eight years, we're 6 trillion. and what people don't understand is the acceleration of interest payments. the president says as long as we make the interest payments we're doing fine. the challenge right now 224 billion dollars a year in interest. cbo estimates within ten years, 857 billion dollars in interest. that's more than we paid for the entour war in afghanistan in 12 years, and this is just within ten years. this is very serious and we have to deal with it. >> you told the president a story out of the bible in your meeting with him. i'm not sure if i totally understood. the story of king hezakiah, tell us what you told him and how it related to washington today? >> i think the clearest example in the scripture, was king hezakiah, was respected and helped to protect the nation at that time. at theened of his time as king he did some pretty foolish things that set up the nation to collapse after that. isaiah comes and confronts him, it will cost captivity of the nation and do

covered while the bush administration encouraged embedding and said it wasn't responsible for the safety of those not embedded, some journalists set out on their own to see what they could see without american mel tear supervision or restrictions. >> with iraq, this is what i knew about it before i went for the first time. >> reporter: thorn anderson and kale alford, ameri reed couple who live in texas were among the unembedded photojournalists who covered iraq back then. their san francisco exhibit "eye level in iraq" shows the result of their taking chances as they tried to find iraqis in situations apart from the troops. >> when you talk to an iraqi person and you're surrounded by these giant men with >> when you talk to an iraqi person and you're surrounded by these giant men with, you know, automatic weapons and flak jackets and helmets, they just cannot respond to you in a normal way. you can't sit there and have tea with them; you can't go their funerals, you can't play with their children. the only way to have that experience is to get outside the humvee, to take off the flak jac
, under the bush administration, they had this idea to take the postal service and the postal service alone and no other agency in federal government, and make them prepay their retirement systems 75 years into the future. let me give you an example of what that means that means they're prepaying the pension for someone who is not born today, for their retirement a half century down the road. no oragency, no private company would do that. but we are requiring the postal service. so when you hear the postal service is losing money, almost every single dollar of those losses is due to the prepayment of this unusual requirement that only the postal service has to pay. so what happens, the response? clearly, i think this is an attempt to try to privatize the system. to take away a system that i think so many people have relied on for so many years in this country. but this is what we see happening system of recently, we saw there was a move to go from six-day delivery to five-day delivery. when you start to cut back on delivery, it has a real ramification on people, on what they're going
, president bush when he put us into war? president obama is bringing the soldiers back, where are the funds to be utilized back into our society? all the oil we got from saddam hussein? why isn't anybody going back to the fact that the reason we got into this mess is because of what happened with the bush administration? obama had to bail out wall street. complaining about all these other problems we are having. we're going to leave it there. you have given us a lot to work with. guest: that is a point democrats are making. deficitans were hitting spending -- but the cr is not addressing the problem. -- both sides are making that point. another element was a fight between democrats and republicans on the senate budget. how they arrived at savings in republicans said the numbers aren't realistic. host: are to be republicans also increases in spending in other areas, that it pushed the debt way beyond where it was when they first came into office, five or six years ago? point to the trend, how much was there when obama came into office and how much there is now. when you look at what republic
during the bush years which was not paid for. >> exactly. and that's why a lot of us that listen to the people talking about the importance of the deficit, and we think where was that in the 2000s. the basic concept should be when the economy is doing better that you cut back, and when it is struggling you make sure the government is doing their part. >> bill: and that formula has always worked. >> right. >> bill: and i think it works with president obama's stimulus bill. >> yeah, absolutely. >> bill: if he got a bigger stimulus, the economy might look better than it does. jennifer thanks so much for coming in this morning. >> thank you. >> bill: we'll be back and talk cpac with james holmman from "politico." >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out.
in the decision to dismiss three defendants in a lawsuit that bush administration brought against new black panther party is. >> to start high school football players from steubenville, ohio are heading to a juvenile jail. the two teenagers 17 year- old trent maize and 16 year olds malik richmond were coconvicted of raping a 16 year-old girl falling of alcohol fuel party last summer. but now ohio's attorney general is calling for a grand jury investigation to see whether other teenagers, and even coaches, parents and school officials broke the law by not speaking up sooner. >> this community desperately need to have behind us. >> this community needs to know that justice was done and needs to know that no stone was left unturned. >> both teenagers address to the court and apologized for their behavior. mays was sentenced to a minimum of two years in juvenile correctional facility. richmond was sentenced to a minimum of one near the bolts could be in detention until they are 21. >> a small plane crashes in indiana has killed two people and injured several others. authorities said the private
of george w. bush's presidential campaigns. >> i appreciate her encouragement that i ought to go home to texas. i'd be ennewsed if i ran for office to have her support. but i don't think i'm particularly good candidate, sort of a balding fat guy. and second of all, i'd say if i did run for office and win, i'd serve out my term. i wouldn't leave office midterm. >> ouch. our question, in a i'm threat cal match-up, who wins over the republican faithful, karl rove or sarah palin? >> sarah palin. simply because she's just more likeable. you may think she's an idiot, you may think she has no idea what she's talking about, but there is something about her charisma that attracts a large number of people and causes people to want to listen to her and be attracted to her. karl rove is right. he does not have that appeal. and worse yet is that he has a lot of egg on his face from 2012 including the meltdown in ohio. so if you go past the last victories, last thing we saw from karl rove was a total melt dunn. >> he's right, it's sarah palin. karl rove seems to know his place and he knows it's beh

to the bush era whereas rand paul is very much his father's son and has the non-interventionist, but pull everything back and worry about our own business mentality. >> bill: and also at cpac last weekend rand paul saying that the party looked moss covered, right? pardon me. and he followed marco rubio to the podium who flat out stated we don't need any new ideas. we don't need any new ideas, we just have to package them better. >> yeah, that's the big debate whether or not they need to change their position or just market themselves better and not have mitt romney out there making comments about the 47%. and it gets back to the idea that people say the republican party rests on those three legs of economic conservatism social conservatism and a strong foreign policy. rand paul says a lot of these things should be left up to the states in terms of stuff like gay marriage and abortion and to the foreign policy conservatism because he has that isolationist streak running through them. but you can see rubio and rand paul also working together in some way particularly

congress, including the deal on the bush tax cuts that were made at year end. $2.4 trillion of deficit reduction over the next ten years. and all also agree that $is.8is- that $1.8 trillion was gutting expenses and a little more than $600 billion of this was revenues achieved through the year-end bush tax cut deal. so everwhelmingly what has been done thus far has been in spending cuts rather than new revenues. it is very important for us to know that. it is very important for folks to realize that democrats are willing to make are hard calls about spending. we've done it already. but the question before this body and the question before the house now is going forward, what do we do to achieve additional deficit reduction that's consistent with having a growing economy? and the approaches of the senate and the house on this could not be more different. the house approach basically says that all additional deficit reduction should be achieved by cutting spending. by looking at one side of the balance sheet. i do not know of a business, i do not know of a family, i do not know of other u
